"But as for me, I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more."
When we're up against something big, it's the promises of God that bring us hope. But if we fix our eyes on the trial, instead of on the One who has promised to carry us through it, then hope will evade us. The missionary Adoniram Judson was suffering from fever in a wretched prison in Burma. A friend sent him a letter, asking, “Judson, how’s the outlook?” Judson replied, “The outlook is as bright as the promises of God.” Judson looked beyond his immediate circumstances and placed His confidence in the Lord and His promises. We can do the same. When we do, we will have continual hope and we will praise God more and more.
